We stayed one night at Villa la Gloriette and found Claire and Christophe to be very gracious hosts. We also stayed at a time when only one guest room was operating- the Bovary room. Unfortunately we were not able to take advantage of its lovely balcony, nor the beautiful gardens, because it was raining continually during our stay. If you are able to understand, and possibly even speak, some French then the owners will be truly delighted as we found ( my husband only has limited French so they were happy to speak English for him). As other reviewers have stated we managed to find a street park and it is very close to the metro and within walking distance- even in the rain- of some decent eating places. It is a very secure property and Christophe generously allowed us to store our luggage on-site after we had checked out and wanted to explore Rouen for the day. The breakfast was continental style, fresh and generous. I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending this delightful property to anyone looking for quality, convenient accommodation in Rouen.
